Our Sessions – Our Approach
Our practice utilizes music as a tool to engage any and individual feeling inhibited or held back from their potential including those who are developmentally disabled or with special needs. Music is often a key that opens a door. A connection is formed. We then leverage this connection and resultant positive transformation as an opportunity to develop and enhance quality of life, needed skills, and to reinforce learning. Music Therapy is a powerful, non-threatening tool used to build upon an individual’s innate strengths, while gently guiding the individual/group to a beneficial and productive experience resulting in progress and enjoyment. It uses instrumental play, singing, and socialization to embark upon a stimulating and creative musical journey. Our approach leverages music to improve and focus on non-musical skills. Sessions are highly adaptive to an individual’s unique circumstance or functionality. In Jammin’ Jenn sessions, musical activities are custom designed to promote specific cognitive, motor, perceptual, communication, and behavioral goals that address each person and an overall wonderful experience.
Nourish the Quality of Their Lives
Jammin’ Jenn Music Therapists’ aim is to provide a unique opportunity for any individual, including those with autism and other special needs to embark upon a stimulating and creative musical journey. Progress is made resulting in more rewarding interpersonal relationships and experiences. Jammin’ Jenn Music Therapists combine multi-faceted training and a sincere sensitivity for individual and group needs.
Areas of Focus
Some but not all goals we set toward progress are in the areas of speech/communication, socialization/behavior, cognition, self-esteem, & self-expression.
